Barbie of Landmark Labradoodles has donated Maggie to Maggie was bred by Barbi of Landmark Labradoodles and donated to North Star Foundation where she was trained by Linda Caplan of My Dog's Place in Mystic for six months. Maggie has completed her initial training and has been placed with a family having two autistic children.  Children with autism can have difficulties communicating with people, and can find a comforting and stress-free relationship with a dog. Maggie and her new family continue to go through training.  When they have completed their Canine Good Citizen test, Maggie will have public access certification. Update from caregiver Sharlene : Maggie has been doing great and is currently enrolled in an advanced obedience training course at My Dogs Place in Mystic.  They are really focusing alot on the CGC test which is what we are aiming for now.  After she passes that we will then start working on the public access certification.   I also have her enrolled in a social class every Thursday.  She gets to run around a play area with other dogs for an hour and she loves it!  She turned one on Oct. 12th and we had a little birthday party for her complete with a cake.  I'm going to be sending you some pictures and I hope it doesn't clog up your internet connection.  Some are of her birthday, one is in her social class where she adores this German Shephard named Tessa and the last was taken just last night from Halloween.

About North Star Foundation

At North Star, the clients are children whose challenges range from autism to serious medical conditions to grief over the loss of a parent. All these children have family members who are similarly affected and whose needs are factored into their services. Traditionally, Assistance Dog were highly trained to mitigate a specific disability (i.e., seeing eye or wheel-chair work) for predominantly adult clients, with very little preliminary or follow up contact. At North Star, they are focused on children. North Star Foundation believes their nonprofit status is at the very heart of their endeavor. Many families with children who face special challenges are struggling both financially and emotionally to provide for them. North Star dogs are placed with families based upon a sliding scale when funds are available to mitigate their disability or ease the pain associated with a trauma or a loss. Your money can help a child who faces a challenge to meet his or her social, emotional and educational needs. All donations are tax deductible as well as greatly appreciated. follow this link for more information North Star Foundation 20 Deerfield Lane Storrs, CT  06268 www.NorthStarDogs.com northstarfoundation@charter.net "We help children find their way."
